Sometimes, the sartorial inspiration can strike from the most unexpected places. That's precisely what happened with the above picture. I'm not usually one to swoon over bridesmaids dresses, but I simply couldn't take my eyes off of this gorgeous palette of pink and coral lace. There's something so cheerful and summery about these hues! Plus, pink being my favorite color of all times, I simply can't believe that I don't own anything in pink lace yet!
Of course, these are not the easiest hues and pieces to pull off. Unless you want to resemble a life-sized Barbie desperately seeking her Ken, you should pay close attention to your styling. The best thing to do is avoid too much visual information: no wild mixing and matching here! You can always tone the brightness of pink and coral down with neutrals like black, beige and denim. A stunning lace dress would look fantastic with a denim jacket or a classic trench (hello, glamorous). Or you could pair a bright pink top with skinny jeans and low boots or nude pumps. And if you're more conservative or simply intimidated by all the brightness, start with just a hint of pink lace on your shoes. Bonus points? When you're wearing such cheerful colors, you are bound to feel happy!
So tell me, have you already experimented with colorful lace? Are you planning to?
